  1. Calmar scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    Young, green, not too far from moonshine, if it is evolution, it is not its crown, but rather the most notorious missing link between monkey and man, in this case it is not moonshine, but not whisky. Something interesting, pineapple-citrus in places makes its way, but it is so fragmented that it does not change the picture as a whole. The taste is not so bad, but the fragrance evokes memories of the 90's, the faded vodka in the entrance, moonshine in the garden ... okay, let's not talk about the sad, aftertaste, alas, also not happy with its ersatz-sugariness. Conclusion - you can drink, but why?
    • Nose
      Juicy and powerful smell of grain moonshine, alcohol, light rubber tones, sweetness in the background, pineapples, mineral tones, but moonshine prevails.
    • Taste
        A sharp wave of red pepper, with the old, half-weathered, a little wood, sweetness, a little pineapple, kumquats, on the whole poorly, something breaks through, but there is no whole picture.
    • Finish
      Short, sweet, and the sweetness is not sugar, and some sugar substitute - artificial, chemical.

  3. zinaf scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    I like it without water as the palate deteriorates a bit.
    • Nose
      Pears, lots of it. But very nicely presented. Very fruity and sweet. Fudge - like the one from Amersfoort market (just any good wuality would do). Now it's all candied.

      Water - tones down a bit. Pear jello. Lots  of vanilla, Fudge and Pear drops.
    • Taste
      Pears, toffee, a bit biting, then goes into the finish with Fudge and slight bitterness and touch of dryness and white pepper.

      Water kills the sweetness, dry, pepper and bitterness. With some time some vanilla is back as sweet sensation.
    • Finish
      Medium.
      The finish with water is dryer.

  8. Koloman scored this whisky 64 points Expert Senior

    deliberately bottled as a first impression of what might become of it in the future, and thus OK
    • Nose
      metallic sharpness, fresh sea breeze, crisp apple, sweet vanilla
    • Taste
      Young and vigorous, apple with lemon, metal, earth and salt
    • Finish
      short and crisp, a touch of wood, plenty of vanilla, pepper

  9. magic_slim scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Too young but there are some promising aspects as well.
    • Nose
      Fresh, light, sweet with a whiff of peat at first nosing. Lots of lemon fragrance cleaner. Furthermore some floor polish, vanilla and porridge.
    • Taste
      Spicy, hot and dry at first mouthfeel. Pepper, liquorice, a little bit of lemon and peat.
    • Finish
      Medium long with the notes of pepper and liquorice lingering on. 

  10. DunklerRabe scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    I like it, it is not bad at all, but there is still some way to go. If they keep up the good work like that I will be happy though.
    • Nose
      You get lots of 1st Fill goodness, it is mild and sweet, with vanilla and light fruits
    • Taste
      It starts gentle and soft, but it cannot hide a certain youth and therefore roughness which comes up after a moment, together with a surprisingly strong spicyness with is neither youth nor oak
    • Finish
      Rather short, some spicyness stays a moment and there is almost no oak influence
